I thought it expires on Monday at midnight, i.e. Sept. 13 midnight, and it has 24 hrs more to go.

OH NO! Now I'm scared to go out of my house! Don't you fools realize that ban was the only thing preventing the mass slaughter of innocents? Why, the only thing that kept criminals from engaging in violent acts with such weapons was the knowledge that the were banned! Now they will have no such restraint! They'll be free to kill and maim with a clear conscience! Oh, the humanity!

FROM BATF............

Semiautomatic Assault Weapon Update

By statute, the prohibitions relating to semiautomatic assault weapons and large capacity ammunition feeding devices expired on September 13, 2004. As a result, certain sections of the Gun Control Act, 18 U.S.C. Chapter 44, and its implementing regulations, 27 CFR Part 478, are no longer in effect.


I believed it was tomorrow at midnight too...... guess it's time to bunker up for their counter attack. They'll come for em all next.

Stay safe !

I looked again and now I found some articles, which said it does indeed expire Sun, so it expired.

BUT California has its own separate ban, which does NOT expire.

"The end of the federal prohibition will not affect California's assault weapons ban, which is broader and has no expiration date. "

The Ban expires Midnight 13 Sep 2004. That was 15 minutes ago.

1159 PM 12 Sep 2004
1200 AM 13 Sep 2004 -- that is Midnight Sept 13.

The ban has expired.

So did I but on that other thread they said it expires at 12:01 Monday morning. It has to go through the process of being reversed off the books or something like that.

http://www.atf.gov/firearms/saw-faqs.htm

Updated FAQ:

Was the SAW ban permanent?

A: No. The law enacting the ban provided that it would expire 10 years from the date of enactment, which was September 13, 1994. Therefore, effective 12:01 a.m. on September 13, 2004, the provisions of the law will cease to apply.

The language said it was repealed 10 years after it's effective date - repeals take place at the beginning of the day.

And to correct the title, we have SOME of our freedom back.

This is Sunday Midnight, or by now it's early Monday morning. Midnight comes at the end of the day.

When they say it expires on Sept. 13th, I would count that it expires at the END of that day, and I read Sept. 13th midnight, but I also recently saw some articles saying that it expired.

But, unfortunately, it doesn't apply to CA.

So what's next for pro-self-defence Americans?

How about getting rid of form 4473? I don't want to register with the ATF when I buy a gun.

You always had your freedom, if you were willing to take it.

Today, something unlawful yesterday is lawful today. And subject to change by the whim of a legislature, later today. Not much freedom there, when the legislature doesn't honor the founding documents.

The Republicans get a lot of flack (deservedly at times) but they came through on this. Took Republican control in the House, Senate, and W.H. to do it, though.

I had this 10 year long nightmare that there was this limit on 'assault weapons'. It seemed really real.

Now I look around, and it's a new day. And there is no such thing. Poof, like it was never there.

Well, I want at least some sympathy. ;)

We, in CA are still stuck with an even more stringent AWB, which has no expiration date, so we would have to repeal it and you know the chances of that.

Yep! Now this is cute....listen to this.... my 9 yr old son shoots an Armalite A-2 (post ban). I was explaining to him about this ban expiration, and how the leftists wanted to take pretty much all of our protective weaponry.

Well....every morning before I leave the house, we have family prayer....for protection, God's mercy, healing for people we know who are sick...

Last week, my 9 yr old boy started asking God that this (cursed) AWB would NOT be renewed!

I'm sure he'll be pleased when I get to tell him this in the morning. :-)

A small victory for individual rights, but a victory nonetheless! Time now to go on the offensive with some progress on CCW reciprocity, gun maker immunity and, hopefully, appointing some federal judges and Supreme Court justices who can actually read the Constitution..
